  2. What color is it?
  3. How does this color make you feel in 1-2 words?
  4. Imagine this thing in nature is before you. Describe it in 2-3 words.
  5. How do you think this thing in nature would describe itself?

My Bare Poem

A snowy mountain



challenging but humble

"You don't need to be scared

I may be mighty,

but I am modest."

The Final 

A snowy mountain

can be shockingly


offering a

clean and spotless


He is

challenging and humble.

In a husky voice

he assures me,

"You don't need to be scared

I may be mighty,

but I am modest.

Let me lead you

to the summit."

MHN has since deleted her poem, but the prompt can still be found on her instagram and her free downloadable artwork can be found on her website.

While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
